Skin First Philosophy.

If you start with skin first, the rest falls into place.

The best plan? To have one.

Perhaps you have spent countless hours pursuing the perfect solution at great cost. Bouncing from product to product, overwhelmed by information and, sometimes, questionable advice. There is so much out there, and yet results still elude you.

Sound familiar?

The truth is skin care doesn’t have to be complicated.

In the challenge to find the right skincare solution, the most important fact is often overlooked – your skin story.

Say goodbye to guesswork for good.

my personal philosophy

Does the quest for great skin feel hopeless? The struggle is real, I get it.

If navigating the mountain of choices, suggestions and Dr. Google recommendations feels more like solving a riddle and a bootcamp workout, it’s time to change the approach.

Amazing things can happen with the right skin care. As skin care has evolved, so have the possibilities for outstanding results, especially at home.

But…great products don’t translate directly into great results. The other critical piece is the intelligence and the organization behind it.

Very early on I questioned why more time wasn’t spent defining programs for at home use. Arranging all the pieces in a way that makes sense FOR YOU. It seemed outrageous (and still does) that such an important investment, used twice daily, is afforded such minimal time and attention.


Great skin care is so much more than the sum of a few products. To get the most out of your products, and the results you deserve, you need the right products for your age, skin type and condition. I bring the expertise and arrange it.

I know what great skincare can do. I’ve seen it and experienced it. My Skin First Program is the result of many years of skin encounters combined with a natural talent to organize and makes sense of things. Welcome to my happy place!

You might have concerns and issues with your skin. You may just want to be sure you are doing the right things. Or, you may have lost hope thinking that you will never have the skin you want. Just know, it’s never too late to figure it out.

You just need the right person to do it for you.

So about that peeling…

It has been a busy month providing peels. So I thought I would share some of the peeling stages from my own peel that I finally got around to. It is a challenge doing your own peel application to say the least. Lucky you to have me do it for you! The version of the...

Languishing. The Emotional Long-Haul of Covid

Feeling the blahs right now? Not a news flash I’m sure. Many are. I know I am. It’s hard to put your finger on it. Even if things in general are pretty ok, it’s feels hard to shake that feeling of …meh. Perhaps you call it Groundhog Day. Me, I call it wash, rinse,...
